The Host (Blu-ray)

An alien race has begun colonising Earth by taking over human bodies and erasing their minds and memories. Only a small band of survivors remain who are working to protect themselves from extinction. One of them is Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), who, when out on a search for food, meets another human being named Jared Howe (Max Irons) and it isn't long before they begin to develop feelings for one another. However, when Melanie is taken by the alien species and is made host to one of their own, it seems all hope is lost. That is, until Melanie's mind begins to fight back against her new inhabitor and her human emotions and memories ignite some empathy in the alien parasite. She and her new "guest" set out to find a hidden enclave of unaffected humans, with an alien seeker in hot pursuit... Diane Kruger and William Hurt co-star in this science fiction romance adapted from the novel by Stephenie Meyer, creator of "The Twilight Saga".
